Artificial intelligence software programming is all in a day’s work for these eager year 9 students.
Students from Roma, Chinchilla and Miles will be the first to take part in the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy’s (QMEA) brand new Chatbot Program this week.
“We are delighted to have Origin’s support for this new workshop where students will collaborate to design and program their own chatbot,” said Katrina-Lee Jones, Skills Director, Queensland Resources Council (QRC).
‘“AI and automation are increasingly being incorporated in the way we work, and it’s important for students to become excited about potential careers in these areas,” she said.
“The workshop will help our students see the practical uses of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), while encouraging them to continue high-level STEM topics into senior years,” said Roma State College Principal Guy Hendricks.
Principal of Miles State High School Josette Moffatt said they were pleased to host students from Chinchilla, for the event.
“It’s such a great opportunity for our students to have such an exciting hands-on opportunity to expand their understanding of robotics and automation, and how their school work fits into that,” she said.
